The Ultimate Show in Brazil

For the duration of the World Cup (ends 13 July), I'll be donating 80% of any royalties I receive from sales of The Ultimate Show to Oxfam, a British charity easing suffering throughout the world. What's more, I'll donate 100% of any winnings I receive from the TTA Press World Cup sweepstake (I've drawn Germany) and round the donation total up to the next £10.

Included in The UItimate Show is 'Extra Time', a short story suitable for soccer/football fans and avoiders alike.

The Ultimate Show is available in Kindle format from all branches of Amazon, also in epub format
from Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. If you'd like to support this charity promotion, please go to my website's Books page and follow the link to the appropriate on-line store, which will take you to my author page and links to all my ebooks.
